OUR ITALIAN LINE
The sleek nature combined with the soft Vachetta leather gives this new line of Ekster’s men’s Italian leather wallets a spectacular appeal. The Torino Tan features a bright catchy beige that will transform into a unique darker shade over time thanks to the ‘patina’ process. The Bologna Black is a classic black Ekster Wallet, perfect for those who want to keep it simple but cultured. The Brescia Bronze will also get darker with time to obtain a color that is distinctive to only your wallet.
Our time in the tanneries at Santa Croce helped us to decide what material our new line of men’s Italian leather wallets would consist of. The prestigious Vachetta, an Italian premium leather, was our final choice. What makes Vachetta leather unique is that it’s completely untreated; it uses no chemical protectors or moisturizing oils, giving it a soft and smooth appearance. Made from a bull’s shoulder, Vachetta leather ages beautifully and durably. While this kind of leather is prone to stains because of the lack of protectors, it is distinctive because of a process known as ‘patina’. The leather starts off as a light beige color and becomes darker over time as it’s exposed to sunlight. As time passes, no two Ekster Vachettas will look the same.
OUR TRIP TO TUSCANY
Within Italy, the highest quality leather is produced in Santa Croce, Tuscany - the world’s most reputed leather manufacturer. We planned a visit during the leather carnival in February to truly understand Italian artisanship and leather production on a much deeper level. The resilience, supple nature, and varied range of colors offered were perfect for Ekster and our new dream-collection. The importance and attention to detail at every stage of leather production was inspiring to say the least. Not only are the raw materials of superior quality, but the Italians have a unique understanding of the tanning process.
Santa Croce thrives on leather production today. But in the middle of the 18th century, it was quite a poor town relying on inadequate agriculture. It was only at the beginning of the 19th century that the town started to gain recognition for leather tanning. What makes this leather stand out is the natural tanning methods adopted by the Italians. They use vegetable tanning, which ensures exceptional quality and versatility. But what makes Italian leather more superior than the leather produced by vegetable tanning in other places? Shop our Italian leather thin front pocket wallets today!

I bought this as a gift for my partner and my partner very much loved it ! The wallet was shown exactly like what it says and the function is also as mentioned. Overall, very happy with the product and the box it came with !
Everything works as expected, and the set up for the solar powered locator chip was super user friendly, even for a non-tech guy like me.

Perfect size, great service, beautiful
This is my first dive into a minimalist wallet and I’m glad I went with Ekster. I’m asked about it a lot when getting out a card or id, people are really into it. The tracker is a great feature.
I have tried just about every front pocket wallet there is and not one compares to Ekster! The feel, how easy it is to use, and the fact that it works like it is suppose to everytime you squeeze the trigger makes it my wallet of choice. I have purchased 2 wallets, a card holder , and a money clip so far and plan on purchasing and using Ekster forever!!
Before I purchased my Ekster Parliament wallet I was always getting frustrated while trying to remove my credit cards from my wallet, they either stuck together or almost impossible to remove. Now it just a simple press of a button and my cards are easily removed no problem. My Ekster Parliament Wallet is the best wallet I have ever owned. Allot of times I go to pull out a credit card in front of a cashier I usually get a comment, "Wow, that's pretty cool,where did you get that".
From the moment I opened my package I knew I’d love the Ekster brand. But after owning my wallet for a month, my tracker device wouldn’t charge. Through a quick and easy warranty claim process, I was responded to in a timely manner and my replacement card has been shipped to me with no extra charge. Thank you Ekster!
I bought the metro 52 matte Parliament wallet and it is hands-down the best wallet I've ever purchased. I can not tell you how excited I was to receive this in the mail. There is one problem or thing that disappointed me; it's the plastic button that springs your cards forward. I thought the button was going to be made out of metal. The plastic lowers the quality and for that price point I was expecting premium quality. I really love the wallet but, metal would have been a nice finish. One crazy feature that I would love for the wallet to have is a wireless portable charger on the front. It just looks like it could have one! That would be awesome! Thank you Ekster for this amazing wallet.
